Brown Co road oil bid approved

Brown County Courthouse

(KNZA)--Brown County is preparing for this summer's chip and seal road projects.

The Brown County Commission on Tuesday accepted the low bid submitted by Vance Brothers, of Kansas City, Missouri, for the purchase of an estimated 500,000 gallons of RS-IH Plus road oil for $2.39 a gallon delivered. It was among two bids received.

In other business, Chase Dudzinski, chief financial officer for Amberwell Health, met with the Commission to discuss the Rural Hospital Innovation Grant.

He said they would like to seek the state grant for the Hiawatha hospital.

If awarded, Dudzinski said the grant funds would be used to increase their abilities to do more surgical procedures and for technology infrastructure in order to keep patient information safe.

The hospital would be required to provide $2 of matching funds for every $1 awarded.

The county must serve as a pass-through entity for the grant funds.

Commissioners tabled approval until next week's meeting so they could review the grant application.
